It's official, everyone: the 2014 mtvU Woodie Awards are dunzo. Whether you're still nursing a well-worth-it burn from the Texas sun or in withdrawal from watching the show's rad performances from the comfort of your couch, you've got to agree that this year's Woodies really knocked it out of the park. Some incredible on-stage acts and top-notch presenters rolled into Austin for the March 16th show, so we know you just had to be glued to your TV screen. On the off-chance you were held up somewhere being hypnotized by a Beyonce video (it's a real problem, people), check out our recap below.
If there's any tried and true way to kick off an awards show, a surprise mini-performance of Lil Wayne's crowd pleaser 'A Milli' by Young Moolah Baby himself is the way to go. Literally jumping out on stage to open the Woodies, Wayne got the audience hyped for some 'huge mother****in' artists.'
Next up, swoon-worthy Brit band The 1975 arrived to grace The MTV Artist Stage with their delicious hit, 'Chocolate,' before accepting one of the biggest awards of the night, Breaking Woodie. From there things only got more exciting, as young Hollywood hotshots Shailene Woodley and Theo James strolled on stage to present an exclusive clip from their new movie, 'Divergent.' Once the audience had enough of a thrill from seeing bad-a** Tris do her thang, they got another surprise when the on-screen duo revealed the winner of the Performing Woodie, uber-talented ginger and acoustic guitar-extraordinaire Ed Sheeran.
The sun may have set on the 2014 mtvU Woodie Awards, but look on the bright side y'all - you now have a full 12 months to stock up on sunscreen, water, goldfish, rubber chickens and everything else you'll need to survive next year's show. There's no telling what it'll bring, but one thing is certain - if we want to top this year's show, it's gonna be good.
